My MegaTrain Adventure

So, I’m always on at Mum to let me go on a train. ‘No way,’ she says. ‘Absolutely no way…’

‘But Else got to go on the train,’ I tell her. ‘And buses. She liked to go on the top deck. She’d sit right at the front and pretend she was driving.’

She’d sit right at the front and pretend she was driving.

‘That was Else,’ says Mum. ‘You’re you.’ Which is like the most unhelpful comment ever. I’m like, ‘Yeah, so what are you saying?’

‘You know very well what I’m saying, Meg,’ she says. ‘Don’t give me that look. You remember what happened…’

‘But that was YEARS ago,’ I say.

‘It doesn’t feel like it,’ says Mum.

‘I can’t believe you’re STILL banging on about it…,’ I said, like give me a break. What happened was nothing basically. And it wasn’t my fault anyway. This busker got on, like came right in my carriage so I told him to get off, I mean as you do, and he’s really like arsey, starts playing his guitar, if you can call it playing, which you can’t, I mean not anything you’d call music, not unless you were deaf, do you know what I’m saying… Anyway, so I’m like this has got to STOP, not just for me but like everyone, it’s the worst sound you ever heard in your life, so I make a grab for his guitar, like spare us. Β And all it is is a big stick basically, but you never heard such a fuss as there was, and nobody stuck up for me, no one, and we had to get off the train in disgrace, Me, Mum and Pie, and walk all the way home, and Mum said never again and we never did.

But like I say, that was YEARS ago. I’m like get over it, be more dog… So, on Thursday, right, it’s this BEAUTIFUL day. And it’s been damp and grey, like forever, but on Thursday, it’s suddenly bright blue sky and sunny and crisp, and guess what, the car’s in the garage, so I’m like let’s go to the Heath, and Mum says ‘I’m sorry, Meg, we can’t; the car’s in the garage,’ like I knew she would, like walking straight into my trap. ‘It’s a shame we can’t go by train,’ I said, all innocent. ‘It’s such a shame…’ ‘I know,’ she said. ‘But we can’t, and that’s that,’ and I just kind of shrugged, like okay whatever, but I made sure I looked a bit downcast, cause it might be the last sunny day we get ever, and I waited, cause I seen the seed was sown.

So maybe half an hour later, she looks at me. ‘I suppose we could try…,’ she says, and I’m like really noncommittal, like well only if you’re sure… So that decides her. ‘Come on,’ she says. ‘What’s the worst that can happen. Actually, don’t answer that,’ she adds quickly.’

So we did, and do you know what. It was the best day ever, and we took some photos to show you.

First we walked up to the station, which was really exciting, and they opened the special wide gates for us to go through.

Then we got a lift down to the platform, so we didn’t have to use the stairs, and it was really good fun and Mum let me press the buttons.

Then on the train, I got lots of treats. ‘Top quality treats,’ says Mum, ‘that’s the secret to travelling with dogs,’ which was quite rude actually, except they were nice treats.

We got to Hampstead Heath in no time at all, which I’d like the journey to have lasted longer, but we climbed up Parliament hill and you could see all over London, which was cool, and we still had the journey back to look forward to too.

Then I got out for a hop and did some digging and just enjoyed hanging out in the sun.

We went for tea at Kenwood and I got a sausage and then it was time to go home. At the station we got in the lift again, except the sign for the lift didn’t have any dogs on, which Mum and me both thought was wrong, so we fixed it for them.

Then we waited on the platform and I was so excited for the train to come.

And here I am on the train, which you can see how perfectly behaved I am and how there’s no reason not to take me anywhere.

Then we were home. ‘You must be tired,’ said Mum. But I wasn’t, not at all, not the tiniest bit. In fact, I was already planning our next adventure.

Thank you for reading,

Lots of love, from

    1. Thank you, Michelle. That was my own drawing. Mum tried but it looked nothing like me, so I had to do it myself. Same as I have to do everything. Sigh. Love to my Rottie cousins ❀️

  3. The Megstar has the best adventures! I loved hearing about your day Meg and especially got a kick out of your excited face photo. I’m sure glad there was no busker to annoy you so you could have a great day.
    You are the cutest. Continue having fun sweet girl.

    1. Aww, thank you, Kerren. I’m glad you like my excited face photo. I like every photo of me. Mum says it’s cos I’m vain but I’m just being honest. I can’t help it if I’m the cutest ever. I’m glad there was no busker too, so I didn’t have to ask him to leave and have him cause a scene again. Honestly! And guess who’d have got the blame…
      Love Meg xxx

  4. Awe, I remember seeing Miss Pie in the cool double-decker bus. I think it was her tooth that day.πŸ€”

    Megastar, we are going to live through your dog eyes! πŸš‚πŸ›€β€οΈ

    I love you persuaded mum to get you back on the train, and after all, you were saving everyone from misery with that god awful sounding stick right. OMC! I bet the crowd was silently cheering you on Meg get that stick, Meg! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ» Tell mum I can only imagineπŸ˜¬πŸ‘€ no wonder we need poison/hair dye MEG!πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ¦³

    What I adore seeing is you are allowed to go all these places do you think they allow cats too? Purrkins could come along in his carriage.

    I love the proper sign you posted! Purrfect! Next time, please sign your art with your three muddy paws k? How else will the world know the Megastar was on the mega-adventure. Just saying.

    Thanks for taking us on your mega-adventure, your one lucky dawg! Might I add looking as glorious as ever Miss Meg!

    We are going to dream of coming to getting on that choo choo with you & Mum! Mark said he would happily take you both in the big truck any day, k! β€œAll our dreams can come true” We tripawd peeps know that better than anyone!

    Spirit kisses to the pie in the sky!βœ¨β­οΈπŸ˜‡ woof woof
    Loads of love from all of us at the Purrkins palace.

    1. I expect they were cheering me on too, Holly, only I wish they could have done it a bit more loudly. You don’t see many cats on trains, but they are definitely allowed. I think me and Purrkins should catch a train together sometime. I can just imagine him jumping between all the luggage racks, and at least if he got into trouble that would distract from me getting told off for five minutes. I will definitely sign my artwork next time. Mum said not to, but she’s a spoilsport. I agree with you.
      Lots of love to all at The Palace of Purrkins…
      PS I’m dreaming hard.

  5. OHHHHHHMYYYYYYMEEEEEGGGGG!!!! ❀❀Loooooove the sign you and your Mum made at the lift! And I would love to know what went thru everyone ‘s mind as they saw it. I know you attract lots of attention wherever you go because you are so darn cure!! And now with your special lift with your likeness……..everyone will understand when tney see you coming to make a path as the Queen heads towards her elevator!!😎

    Love what Holly said avout “loving thru your eyes”.
    And as your Auntie Linday said, “You keep living that β€œbest” life Meg and keep taking us along for the ride”
    I know it was almost your best day evvvvver, except one thiing thing was missing, mud!!!!

    I’m so glad your Mum understands you so well. Yoi habe trained her with a special expertise that only you possess. I’m sure its been exasperating at times, but well worth the effort!
    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your journey with us. The picture from Parliament Hill, from inside the train. the photo of you soaking up the sun (wishing for a mud hole), and then the trademark Meg sticking out her tongue…….we love travel with you!! While I’ll most likely never get to your part of the world, I feel like a happy tourist sharing adventures with you by uour side.
    I always get sooooooo excited when I see a post from you!😎 REALLY!!! I always feel the presence of Pie tooπŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

    Lots of love always😊
    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

  6. This was the BEST way to start my week! You should hear me lol’ing at your adventure Meg, it’s like I got to go along with you. THANKS! I’ve never been to your country and this was as close to it as I can get right now. What a joy to have a three-legged tour guide.

    As someone who has said “Never again!” many times when it comes to taking Wyatt Ray to certain places, I can relate to your mom’s reluctance to do certain things with you. I know, you’re pawesome and the best dog EVER, but wow that guitar stick scene, oh my gosh! It’s funny NOW, but for us humans who are so prone to being mortified at the littlest thing, well, situations like that leave a lasting impression on our fragile selves. I’m so glad you showed your mom you can deal with a train ride now. What fun!!!

    P.S. You know that here in the States most dogs are not allowed on busses or trains? It’s a travesty! And people resort to doing all kinds of nutty things to getting them on board anyways, like making their pups wear fake service dog vests and such. It’s causing quite a ruckus here, especially among disabled people who really need their service dogs with them. Hopefully Americans will stop being so uptight about allowing dogs everywhere in public. They need to get with the program and learn to allow dogs wherever the people go! We would love to do things like that with Wyatt. Maybe we’ll move to England!
